Re: FLASH PLAYER

There is no Flash Player for the BlackBerry (or most smartphones).

 

What site do you need? For example with Youtube, you should visit "m.youtube.com"

Re: FLASH PLAYER

I get the same thing. I would like to view Vimeo but is says I need flash 10. The only videos I can stream is youtube mobile. They make it sound like you can connect to wifi/G3 and stream all the video you want off the internet. They don't tell you just as long as it's off youtube mobile. What other sites can we view video from if any?

Re: FLASH PLAYER

 

  If I had known I could not play video ( EXCEPT YOUTUBE ) I would have got an iPhone.

  Even radio as mentioned above... in the UK it needs a flash player ?

 

  UNLESS SOMEONE KNOWS DIFFERENT ?
